There is something about the sea and the early morning cool breeze that makes one feel so alive. The fresh air that smells tangy. The warm seawater is best enjoyed barefoot. The play of colors in the sky is amazing as the sun starts to rise.
I would not mind spending morning at this place where happy memories are made.
Back in 1989, I took this photo at this part of the beach which share the same coastline in my hometown. I have not returned to this place but it was so beautiful that I have not forgotten it. The pine trees standing tall as if sentinels looking out for pirates out on the open seawater. I am glad I took photos of the place and was able to have these developed.
I wish to go to this happy place where the breeze is cool and the waters, warm and inviting. I wish to see the setting sun, splendid in different hues. During sunset, who knew that orange and purple could be a perfect color combination?
My son once said to me that people should not say “I wish” because it sounds so much better if people say “I hope” Why? Not only is there an anticipation but an effort to make that hope come true, more than just wishing something to happen.
One of the highlights of our 2016 summer vacation was when we went to this river. The children and their cousins swam in the big pool-like holes. They stayed in the silver tent for some snacks. My cousin and I stayed in a little pocket pool. These pocket pools were made by the big machineries quarrying the rocks. It was too hot to stay longer so we went back to have lunch at home. These simple bonding moments with family are the things we look forward to whenever we go back home to visit.
Thinking of long gone summer days in the midst of a typhoon.
